South Lake Tahoe isn’t just for the young at heart—actual children can have a great time here, too. And if you bring your kids, no one will look at you funny when you start a snowball fight or a game of Marco Polo in the lake.

A family-friendly destination, Lake Tahoe South Shore offers everything from arcades to helicopter tours. We’ve got hot-air balloons, special events, and even miniature golf.

Or get those kids back to nature. Take ‘em biking by the lake or hiking up the Rubicon trail. Finish the day with ‘smores around the campfire and take part in the time-honored tradition of spooking the whole family with swear-they’re-true ghost stories.

Not in the mood to rough it? Head out on the town for dinner at one of South Lake Tahoe’s many family-friendly restaurants.

There’s just as much to do in winter: sledding, snow tubing, ice skating and school—ski-school, that is. South Lake Tahoe’s ski resorts have ski instruction for all levels, as well as kids’ camps. There’s even daycare for little ones as young as two months.

Whatever the season, South Lake Tahoe is an unbeatable family destination with gazillions of activities. In fact, your kids are likely to crash early from all the excitement, giving you some hard-earned grown-up time in the evening. How’s that for the gift that keeps giving?
